A building with a history: in a former residential house built in 1832 which served as publisher’s and bank offices over the course of time, the non-profit Robert Bosch Foundation has established its representative office in the German capital.
Located centrally in Berlin-Mitte between the Gendarmenmarkt and Foreign Office, the landmark protected classicist style building was recently redesigned by architects Kunat & Haack to comply with its new and contemporary requirements. Today’s foundation offices combine historical stylistic elements with modern transparency and high-quality materials, meeting the aesthetic and functional claim to create a space for exchange and cooperation. At the same time, the furnishing of the rooms was adjusted to the individual needs of their users. Thonet furniture, around 340 cherry-stained chairs of range S 362 and 40 elegant and comfortable chairs S 843 in black cherry, shapes the interior design of the conference rooms on the first and second floors. Complementing the chairs, seven table systems A 1700 with chrome-plated legs and black cherry table tops are used. Aiming to add attractive and sophisticated furniture to the generous and representative atrium of the Robert Bosch Foundation, around 150 black Thonet bentwood chairs 233 were arranged in groupings.
